We’re always keen to connect with organisations and individuals who share a passion for making and teaching music. Music education is such an important part of providing children with a well-rounded education. It provides physical, mental, emotional, and social benefits to young musicians.
We’re pleased to announce that we have formed a partnership with Kidenza whose aim is to introduce children to orchestral music.
Kidenza provides young audiences with a live musical experience in host schools and external venues and with easily accessible video and live virtual content available for use in the classroom.
Since its foundation in 2009, Kidenza has performed to over 38,000 pupils from 489 different schools and reached a further 11,000 through its family concerts. Many of these children had never experienced live orchestral music and the recent inclusion of video content has increased its reach even further.
Founder and CEO of Kidenza, Claire Lambert shares her thoughts on our new partnership:
We feel privileged to be officially partnered with an organisation who has the same values and beliefs as we do. We recognise the importance of working together and often use the saying “together we are stronger”. We are very much looking forward to performing to lots of West Sussex school children and hopefully inspiring them to begin or continue their musical journey.
For us, at West Sussex Music, this is a meaningful partnership which extends our reach to more children and young people and provides even more opportunities to schools.
CEO, James Underwood shares:
We’re delighted to welcome Kidenza as a Hub Partner. We know that by working more closely with such an inspiring organisation we will enable more children and young people to explore the life-changing benefits that music education can offer.
